Our goal when collecting this information from you is to provide you with the most efficient and customized experience while using our site.

These services are cookie-based and do not collect personal information, but do collect user data for purposes of conversion tracking and serving ads targeted to users’ interests.


Each third party is subject to its own privacy policy.

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information.


We may use the information you provide us about yourself to communicate with you, such as to send you email newsletter updates, notify you about our programs and events or solicit additional information from you.

Information Sharing and Disclosure to Others

We may transfer personally identifiable information about you if we, or one of our business units, are acquired by, sold to, merged with or otherwise transferred to another entity. We do not sell, trade, or rent your personally identifiable information to others.


We also may disclose personally identifiable information in response to legal process, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena.
